Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) wants you to get out the vote this week. But not for a politician.
Using formal Senate terminology, Kerry requested a “point of personal privilege” from the more than 3 million recipients on his mass e-mail list.
Kerry also made it a little personal, writing that “Youk is better in just about every category” than New York Yankees first baseman/outfielder Nick Swisher, who is also in the running for a spot on the team.
And, in a final plea that sounds ripped right from a political appeal, Kerry said, “Please don’t let anyone say that Swisher beat Youkilis because Sox fans have gone a little soft after [the team’s World Series victories of] ‘04 and ‘07. Let’s show we’re still the most ravenous fans in baseball.”
